London: Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart has declared that his side are poised for an ‘old fashioned rumble’ against Real Madrid when both sides will meet again in next week’s Champions League return leg at the Bernabeu.

Hart once again rose to the occasion as he produced two demonstrations of the razor-sharp reflexes in the second half as City held a dominant Real to a goalless draw at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday night.

Reflecting on the result, Hart said that they were not disappointed with the outcome, insisting that they have a brilliant squad who are ready for a good old fashioned rumble at the Bernabeu, the Daily Express reported.
